with senators john mccain and lindsey graham along with the u.n. ambassador susan rice. the three senators emerged from the meeting saying they were honored by the fact that the cia director would meet with them, just three random senators and not in some official capacity testifying before committee on the hill. they appreciated the fact that the administration and the intelligence community was going to such lengths to e swaj their concerns to personally answer their questions about the libya attack in a closed-door meeting with the cia director himself, even though these are just three random senators. the senators said their questions were answered as reasonably could be expected and they were willing to consider the president's nominee for secretary of state. they were tlog hear out those nominations fairly and without prejudice. yeah right. that's not the way it went. here's actually what happened after that meeting today. >> we're not going to consider this nomination until we get answers to our concerns. we're not even close to getting t the basic answers. >> we're e troubled by ma
important element, the u.n. dimension: respect for the territorial integrity and independence of iraq. so that meant that the action team could not go to nondeclared facilities. only delareed facilities could be -- declared facilities could be inspected. but then the security council formed out that right to, i would say, break the integrity to the -- [inaudible] so they were charged with nondeclared facilities and activities. of course, then it was, obviously, chemical, biological. but the beauty of these wars that it's tough sanctions system was in place. we have to have that also. but immediately when the inspection started, the sanction system was gradually released. so this was a functioning system, good behavior led also to these single sanctions. bad behavior, which happened, of course, quite frequently, some blockages and refusals, was met by some tough language from the security council. not from the israeli government or anyone, it was security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. so, of course, we know that this system works extremely well. it
that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that experience -- could havi annan led the group to see if they can re-establish something similar and this report of which has not been very much observed. i think we have ideas for iran. that will give really intrusive inspecti
ambassador to the u.n. what about what's going on in the u.n. this week? with the palestinians looking to have their status -- there's an entire agenda. the idea that we're focusing on one set of talking points is ridiculous. >> i know you to be a pretty nonpartisan guy, do you smell anything fishy with this benghazi investigation or the way it was handled? do you sense any incompetence? because if you talk to john mccain or lindsey graham, you ask the question, are we talking about a cover-up or general inconfidence? >> the idea was, why did they turn down the all the added security? why did the ambassador go without adequate security? that's a real issue. why were these decisions made? the question, then, of the talking points, what did the cia provide, why was the intelligence community late in apparently getting the points right? it's not the first time we've seen things like that. it's worth looking at. but the idea that a month later, we're still focusing on this rather than basic questions of foreign policy on how to deal with terrorism in these areas. seems to me we are missing
, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works? there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it'
. >>> national representatives at the up and coming u.n. climate talks could take on activist roles in the wake of a year with extreme weather. talks resume monday, with a two-week conference in qatar. many scientists say the weather the u.s. experienced, the monster storm and scorching heat waves will occur more often on a warming planet. >>> new yorkers can look forward to one sign of normalcy after superstorm sandy. odd/even gas rationing will end on sunday, after so many gas stations had no power or gas. city officials say 85% of the gas stations are operational again. officials in new jersey and long island had already ended the odd/even system. >>> the estimated cost of the damage and losses to new jersey caused by sandy is $29.4 billion. governor chris christie released that figure yesterday, saying it was a preliminary number. the state has not said how much financial relief it will receive from the federal government. >>> hurricane sandy victims can't seem to escape the devastation and now growing health concerns can be added to the mess left behind. exposure to toxins, mold and dust,
, the date the palestinians will probably bring up the post for a non member state at the u.n., that is the date of the so-called partition of palestine resolution, dating back to 1947 by united nations. that has symbolic meaning as well. and the israelis, not only the israelis have opposed it, but the united states has opposed it. and it will pass most likely because this is a general assembly issue not a security council issue. to but the united states -- -- they are trying to make a point by retaliating in some big way. that will have a cost for the palestinian authority. what does that mean? hamas will emerge as an even bigger winner. there will say, look at what he is getting you have got to vote, but what good did that to do? our way is the best day. get missiles. so that is the political dilemma for the united states. host: leila on our line for independents, go ahead. caller: my comment is, you always have to negotiate with people. when negotiated not only with friends, but with enemies. the enemies have to be [indiscernible] what we initially wanted to do when we sent
the interest. they need to stop giving to the u.n. -- other countries and give to americans first. i worked until i was 68 and then i could not work anymore. i can barely walk. i just live on my social security. i have only medicare. i cannot even afford supplements. people in america are starving and we are giving millions of dollars to other countries. host: james martin, 16 plus. go ahead. guest: my favor a senior citizen, my mom, would have been 96 years old this week. she worked into her 80s and she depended largely on her social security check. not agree more with you. they have stolen from the trust fund for years and the years. i would like to quote two former senators. they held a news conference about 15 years ago and they said, if we did in private business what we do here in the congress, stealing from the trust fund for other purposes, that is called the embezzlement. you get locked up in private industry. congress has been doing that for years. seniors are paying into the fund and there is nothing to use now. it should be stopped. host: we have a tweet. does mr. martin not und
an hour. republican senators get a sit down with u.n. ambassador from the united states, susan rice. why she called this meeting, coming up. >> steve: boys, drop and give me 20. cops make a group of teenage vandals allegedly do pushups. that part we know for sure. but some say that's just too mean. or was it not enough? your e-mail pour not guilty on that one. >> brian: honey, where is the car? it turns out one sex, one gender is better at finding where the car is parked than the other gender. is it men? is it women? "fox & friends" starts now. >> gretchen: i love how you tried to bait me on that. >> brian: why? >> gretchen: was it men? was it women? >> brian: i know. >> steve: good tease. >> brian: i just left the pause out there. either one of you could have chose to pause. instead, i sensed silence. >> steve: we are broadcast professionals. we know we want people to watch the balance of the hour. >> gretchen: let's kick off with headlines. here is an amazing plot twist. was yasser arafat poisoned? palestinian authorities, they say yep. so while you were sleeping, they opened up his gr
collateral damage. >> it's forced thousands of palestinian to turn to u.n. schools turned into makeshift shelters like this one. factions remain defiant. >> speaking about the cease-fire, boom, they're shooting off. >> israel warned it's prepared to invade gaza. for now, it's relying on the superior air power. overnight it struck tens of targets including this key bridge, effectively cutting gaza in half. while the rockets and missiles fly and efforts are in full swing, still anyone's guess which way this war will go. >> secretary of state clinton has arrived in cairo egypt and met with president mohammed morse i. the chances of them reaching a deal about the issues surrounding gaz are are extremely unlikely. they're looking to avert a ground war. >> thank you very much. here's savannah. >> matt, thanks. meantime, black friday is two days away now. the most important day of the year foror the nation's retaile. trouble may be brewing for one of the biggest ones of all. walmart. mark potter is live in doral, florida this morning. mark, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. about a thous
, of course, has been very critical about the potential nomination of u.n. ambassador susan rice to be secretary of state, something that hasn't happened yet. he appeared to strike a more conciliatory tone over the weekend. i'm going to play two statements for you, john mccain a few weeks ago and john mccain yesterday and ask you about it on the other side. >> we will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> i think she deserved the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position, just as she said. >> chuck, very quickly, is this a very significant change? >> reporter: it is and it tells you something that a lot of people have told me presidents get their secretary of states. the question is how much pain is it going to come with? i'm told it's probably not this week, probably early next week that the president finally decides to name a secretary of state, just down to two, susan rice or john kerry, but hearing that might make the white house feel better. i think the president's gut has been if
't work for anyone but u.n. scrupulous employers. we need to take the power out of the hands of those that are exploiting our current immigration situation and put it back in the hands of workers in fair and honest employers. if the workers have a legal status, employers can't skirt labor laws and so they would have to pay fair wages and abide by the rules. immigration reform is the right thing to do as well as the economically smart thing to do. children shouldn't have to live in fear of their parents deportation every day of their lives and some of the hardest working most vulnerable people in our society shouldn't have to be subject to exploitation and harassment. finally, i would just like to say that i am truly appreciative of the support that we have received from the urban league and other african-american leaders on this issue i know that there have been in tensions in the past. the reverend of dr. martin luther king jr. when we have those we have to embrace them so we can pass them. this is our time to come together to break those issues down. let's get a solution on this iss
